Cute!

Thank's Charlies Mim and Dee,

Dee theses are etchings which take ink to print.

Unlike the fowers these plates where etched in acid. I put a ground on the plate, draw the pictute on the plate then it is stuck in acid. I use oil based etching inks and I usally pritn on arches or mulberry paper.

I'm not totally sure if the seahorse and starfish are within the guidelines of a true miniture.

These are great! I love all of the detail on the elephants.
